Rear Sway Bars for ’21 F-150
Hellwig Suspension Products has released two new sway bars for the ’21 Ford F-150.
Hellwig Products sway bars offer improved safety, handling, comfort and overall driver control over factory sway bars made of softer material. These new Ford F-150 rear sway bars use 1-in. diameter, heat-treated 4140 chromoly steel and feature three-hole ends for adjustability. The sway bars have Hellwig Products' signature hammertone finish for maximum durability.
Ford F-150 rear sway bar (PN: 7788) is intended for factory-height Ford F-150s, while the rear sway bar (PN: 7812) is for use on Ford F-150s with 2–4 in. of rear lift. Outside of their differing lengths, the features of these rear sway bars are the same. Each kit comes complete with all mounting hardware necessary for installation, including polyurethane bushings and HD adjustable end links.

- Clears both factory and ARP studs.
- Clears all aftermarket rods and crankshafts up to a 4-in. stroke with no modifications needed.
- Optimized to improve oil scavenging and windage control.
- Hardware for factory studs included.
- Made from aluminum, it weighs less than half as much as the factory windage tray.

Bolt-on Thermostatic Transmission Fluid Cooler Adapter for GM 6L, 8L and 10L Automatic Transmissions
Improved Racing has launched the first ever bolt-on thermostatic transmission fluid cooler adapter for GM’s 6L, 8L and 10L automatic transmissions.
The adapter’s built-in thermostat automatically bypasses the transmission cooler until the fluid reaches operating temperature. This eliminates rough shifts caused by overcooling the transmission, reduces wear, and improves horsepower and longevity. Transmissions come up to temp quickly and still have all of the cooling capacity needed for high-load activities such as towing or racing.
- Available in two temperature ratings: 140ºF and 160ºF.
- -6AN female O-ring boss ports for connection flexibility; choose any line size and type you want.
- Rebuildable thermostat.
- Made in the United States.
- Lifetime warranty.

Ndurance Expanded Performance Oil Rings
Total Seal Ndurance Expanded Performance Oil Rings were specifically designed with turbo and high-boost engines in mind. More boost means thicker oil and requires higher oil ring tension to prevent detonation from poor oil control.
To increase the tension on Ndurance Oil Rings, Total Seal incorporates a special gas nitriding steel heat treatment of the expander. This changes the metallurgy, grain structure and color of the steel. The nitride hardening process integrates onto the surface of the expander to form the nitride layer. This allows the portion of metal below the surface layer to maintain a level of malleability that prevents cracking under extreme conditions.
- Increased performance and endurance.
- Zero to minimal distortion.
- Precise dimensional control.
- Improved wear and corrosion resistance.
- Increased fatigue strength.
- Extended life.
- Added abrasive wear resistance.
- Enhanced surface lubricity.
